Online concert: Never heard before!

Concert will be streamed live on Youtube. Link to the stream will be added on this page.

The programme opens with the world premiere of an unfinished work by Toivo Kuula. Titled ‘Andante’, it was completed by composer Jussi-Matti Haavisto. The other world premieres are Kai Nieminen’s work for solo horn and Jan Lehtola’s Sonata for horn and piano. John Croft’s solo work for natural horn is given its Finnish premiere, and Geoffrey Gordon’s song cycle Winterleben for mezzosoprano, horn and piano is heard for the first time in Europe.
